About Jon Thorvaldsson

My name is Jon and i have been living in Reykjavik for over 20 years. Before that i lived in my old hometown of Akranes. I studied Computer Sciences at the University of Iceland and later did an MBA program at Reykjavik University. I currently work for the city of Reykjavik as Director of IT. I have rented this property to travellers since 2008 with great success. I live in the same building which allows me to respond quickly to any request my guests may have.

Jon Thorvaldsson purchased this Apartment in 2007

Why Jon Thorvaldsson chose Miðborg

This is a unique property and one of the few modern buildings in the central part of town. The location is ideal with all sights and attractions in the centre within walking distance and yet the area is relatively quiet.

What makes this Apartment unique

Some of the unique benefits of this property include the spectacular view from the top floor in all directions. My guests are provided with a mobile phone with a local number as well as mobile WiFi hotspot which allows you to share your digital memories instantly, wherever you are. A private in-house parking space can be reserved during your stay. The apartment is equipped with an Apple TV, JBL Extreme Bluetooth Speaker, exceptionally large bath-tub and other amenities, all aimed at making your stay as convenient as possible.

                                                          Great apt, neighborhood, owner

                                                          nancy r.

                                                          The apt is super clean and has everything one could need (and more). The neighborhood is lively but not noisy, with bars, shops, restaurants, cafes. Market right outside the door, and easy walk to bus stop 7. Owner is very accommodating and responsive.

                                                          Wonderful space in city central

                                                          Arianna P.

                                                          My husband and I really enjoyed the proximity to the downtown area. There are plenty of wonderful restaurants to select from within walking distance as well as grocery stores. The owner of the property lent us a hotspot during our stay which was invaluable without it we would like of been lost. Reykjavík was a wonderful city in a wonderful country and staying in this property made the whole experience more comfortable.

                                                          Perfect base from which to explore Reykjavik

                                                          Melissa M.

                                                          Modern, clean, secure, quiet, fully equipped apartment with stunning views, centrally located near to all the city’s great restaurants, stores, and attractions. We walked everywhere! Grocery store next door. Best coffee in Reykjavik a few steps away. Multiple bus stops nearby for easy access to Golden Circle and Northern Lights Tours. Temperature control, lighting, Wi-Fi, ventilation, hot and cold water in the apartment all excellent. All appliances, including dish washer and clothes washer, worked well. Our host was exceptionally gracious and communicative, and eager to meet all our information needs.

                                                          Comfortable, Quiet, Convenient

                                                          Daryl F.

                                                          This condo/apartment exceeded our expectations. It is located in the center of Reykjavik's busy center, close to shops, restaurants, pubs and museums, but it is surprisingly quiet. The high balcony provides a great view of Hallgrímskirkja church and the street below. The host Jon was very helpful, and always returned our emails right away when booking the condo. A ot of nice extras - mobile phone for local calls, mobile hot spot, a fully stocked kitchen. We can't wait to return!
